Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young and their bodies are not fully developed. Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first year.
Precious Baxter was rescued by a wonderful rescue foster in Texas, she is out every day, picking up stray dogs and bringing them to shelters or other homeowners like you and I that take the dogs in on a regular basis—she kept Baxter. Just looking at this dog makes one so incredibly happy that laughter is the consequence of being in his presence; this amazingly special four-legged Yellow lab—that there is just no denying that his fabulous smile is just infectious and strikingly cute.
This eager to please little bundle weights 70 lbs and is 2 ½ years old. He is totally vetted, completely healthy, and altered. When he was rescued, he was terrified but it didn’t take him long to unfurl his legs and enjoy the attention that is lavished upon him by his foster family. Baxter has a moderate level of activity but always ready to lay next to the side of his humans and just hang out. His tail wags furiously in delight when any attention is given to him or if there’s another dog around! We want him to just be a dog and play, romp, frolic and enjoy life to the fullest. That should not be hard after all — he’s intensely smart. However, he has two outstanding things he loves to do-swim and play ball. For this deserving dog we want to make sure he will have both in his daily life– we aren’t settling for anything less.
Baxter deserves the best, he has flourished more and more each day in daily care of his loving foster home. He prances like a proud boy with the other foster family dogs and enjoys being around people that he follows everywhere. He is just such a sweet boy that when you are with him-he is just contagiously irresistible and we are so happy he was saved, all his devoted fans say he is a love muffin.
Baxter is a dog that likes all people, other dogs and even kids, however, adult supervision is most important around children. Although he has those moments of shyness, he is very affectionate, playful and quite happy. Like any young dog, he is a social dog so he will do best in a home with another dog and with a family who wants to help celebrate his need for continued healthy development and socialization.
That ideal family will need to devote time to Baxter and understand that perfection is possible but that it doesn’t happen overnight. Any new rescue dog requires time, patience and understanding. A dog that has the added baggage of rescue and an unfortunate past requires even more of all the above, but as we’ve found with all the dogs in our care once they’re re-homed, they also tend to offer more generous servings of commitment, loyalty, companionship and devotion for they sense deep gratitude at being loved and feel obligated to show it in every interaction. That’s true for Baxter who is just as precious as can be and eager, ready and waiting to be part of your family! Already he’s learning and responding well to this new vibe of life and love that he’s been introduced to. Baxter is supremely sweet and such a special dog!
